There is something so special about early November in New York City, and a wedding at The Foundry in Long Island City provides such a beautiful setting for all the feels and memories of the day. An industrial warehouse space located at 42-38 9th St in Queens with views overlooking the skyline and multiple raw spaces to work with for design, it was the ultimate setting for 140 of Erica and Daniel’s closest friends and family to gather out of the chilly autumn weather indoors to warmth, candlelight, and a whole lotta love.
Erica worked with Elodie of Tall + Small Events to create an atmosphere at The Foundry that was warm, romantic, but also dramatic. The space is quite industrial, so they brought in a lot of softness with florals from FLWR Studio and colors from Rent Patina – an intentional juxtaposition. They loved seeing Cafe Wha Band perform in Greenwich Village during their years in New York City, so they were a no-brainer. After being together almost a decade and being rather untraditional, the goal for their wedding was to be nothing but fun and a celebration of their partnership. Which it was and more (including some of the funniest speeches I’ve ever heard).

Rehearsal Dinner at Le Fanfare in Greenpoint, Brooklyn
Booking rehearsal or welcome dinner coverage is an amazing way to get extra photos of your most loved people (especially those who may not be giving a toast on the wedding!).
We always like to do a mini portrait session with you both as a couple as a warmup before the big day.
